Currently the national president of the Young creatives in Cameroon, 29-year-old Cameroonian fashion designer Augustine Kouidou’s fashion brand Nakuin employs unique pieces consisting of florals infused satin fabrics, silks, lace, and sequin appliqués matched and conjoined to harmoniously create intricate pieces. Nakuin produces clothing for the bold, audacious and playful woman aiming to woo African, European, and American markets with the bold, floral intricate of her work. It radiates elegance, refinement, and a pinch of simplicity just enough to accentuate the feminine curves. Not one garment is fashioned to resemble the other, all clothing are highly distinguishable!
“When I prepare a collection, I want it to be accessible to all, I want local Cameroonian designers to be respected, especially in their own country, so I make a point to offer quality training to other young designers and aspiring fashion industry professionals.”-Augustine Kouidou

The brand name Nakuin is a fusion of both of her name and her husband’s. Kuin is derived from ‘Queen’ to emphasize the illustrious nature and quality of her pieces.
